Faculty & Staff

Whether you’re returning to in-person work this fall, or you have remained on campus as an essential employee throughout the pandemic, we have resources to help you stay safe, supported, and healthy. As outlined in our Campus Re-opening Framework, all units are required to have detailed COVID-19 safety plans in place prior to resuming operations on campus.

Queen’s Continuity of Education Plan (CEP)

The CEP outlines the protocols and practices in place that will guide the university’s response in the event of a COVID-19 case on campus, and to ensure the continuity of teaching and learning in the event of emergency. The plan was developed with input from Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Public Health. Read the CEP plan now.
